Member of the Jamaica Labour Party election commission, Tom Tavares-Finson, says while some comments in the party’s leadership campaign have been unfortunate, they have not been extreme.
And he says the body set up to monitor the conduct of the party’s internal election is satisfied with how the campaign has progressed so far.
Concerns have been expressed about the rhetoric being used by some party members on the campaign trail with several calls for apologies to be issued by various persons.
There has also been a call for the JLP Leader Andrew Holness to dissociate himself from threats made by some members of parliament against parish councillors supporting Audley Shaw in the leadership challenge.
And it has been reported that veteran politician, Pearnel Charles, has withdrawn from the race for deputy leader, citing divisive comments as an area of dissatisfaction.
However, Tavares-Finson, says compared to other leadership challenges, the current JLP leadership campaign has been very mild.
Tavares Finson says the committee chaired by George Soutar is now finalising matters with the Electoral Commission of Jamaica for the November 10 poll.
And he says the delegates’ list is almost complete and will soon be signed off on by both candidates.
